Property Description

Welcome to The Rockstel Unawatuna!

Nestled away in a quiet, scenic spot surrounded by nature, The Rockstel Unawatuna marks the beginning of the journey for The Rockstel brand of hostels. Here you find a typical Sri Lankan country house with a twist, which has been curated and molded into a party hostel with a unique character, through painstaking attention to detail.

As you enter, you see the paved front garden, facing the colorful social area on the front patio, lined with the trademark seating arrangement of The Rockstel of having converted beds into sofas, with large colorful, comfy cusions to lean on. As you walk inside, you will see our friendly frontdesk staff at the reception, and a host of informative posters, a mini library, a beverage kiosk, and lots of colorful detailing on the walls. Once you complete your check in formalities, you will be led to one of four thematically designed rooms. The hostel has 3 ac rooms , and 1 room with individual fans. Two of the rooms have ensuite washrooms, and the other two share the two additional washrooms. All but one washroom comes with hot water showers. You will also be provided with a key to your individual locker, for your valuables.

While the hostel is a 20 minute walk from the main beach, it is quite centrally located from all four beaches in Unawatuna that travellers frequent, and we feel that if we were located closer to any one beach, we will be further from the rest. Having said that, its still a bit of a walk, so we have made scooter and bicycle rentals available for you through third party providers. If you want to be driven somewhere, our staff would be more than happy to organise a tuk tuk for you. If you are adventurous enough, you can even rent a tuk tuk and ride it yourself.

At The Rockstel Unawatuna, we take pride in being considered the best party hostel in Unawatuna, and to this end we organise events at the hostel every night, such as drinking games, quiz nights, and a host of other activities. We can guarantee you that you will make some memories and friends that you wouldn't forget for a life time.

Eagerly Awaiting to Welcome you at our party hostel in the jungle

    This place holds a special place in my heart. The staff are super friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere is laid back but socialable with a lot of solo travellers who are always inclusive. The location is a little more out of the way - five mins away from the beaches by tuk Tuk but this can easily be forgiven considering how beautiful the green jungle is surrounding the place and the of character hostel itself bringing everything to life. Special shout out for to Charlotte- she knows why x

    Loved this hostel! Staff were so helpful, yousuf greeted us and showed us around - also helped us with questions about where to go & how to travel to the next place. Only downside was it was very quiet, but this is due to low season. Quite a far walk from the beaches, but close to the main road. Overall great hostel and would recommend!

    If you are looking for a hostel with a lot of parties going on, this is your place! If you are looking for something more quiet better go to a different place!

    Thought one to review. Visited the hostel super off season, so it was very quiet (dead). Our group were the only guests. The hostel is in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are nice and they have lockers. Staff is very nice. Common area and bathrooms could be cleaner. I paid for two nights but left after one. There was honestly nothing to do...
